Current Project

El Quebracho, Nicaragua – Water Supply

In the winter of 2020 the chapter adopted a water supply project in the community of El Quebracho in central Nicaragua.

El Quebracho is located outside of the city of Boaco along the Rio Fonseca, and is home to 465 persons in need of a reliable, local, and safe water source. The residents organized a project committee to realize this water source and have asked EWB-USA for a new engineered well to be implemented.

Emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic, the chapter at Washington State University is currently working on state-side assessment duties, fundraising, and conducting community surveys.
